But…But….But You Should Revel In The Vibrant Diversity, Comrade!

Parts of north west England are receiving a disproportionate number of asylum seekers, says Liverpool’s mayor.

Joe Anderson warned of “community cohesion” problems as a result of the government’s private contractor Serco sending too many to some areas.


He told BBC Radio 4’s File on 4: “There seems to be a sort of asylum apartheid operating where certain cities are the ones that are taking the unfair share.”

Surely, comrade, what’s ‘unfair’ is that you are getting more than your fair share of the glorious diversity?

The Home Office told BBC News: “No area in the North West is above the agreed convention of one accommodated asylum claimant for every 200 of the resident local authority population.”

Perhaps the asylum seekers are more noticeable because they actually get up in the morning..?

Labour’s Mr Anderson said: “We’ll always be a city of sanctuary and we’ll always offer a hand of friendship to people fleeing countries where they’re being persecuted. “

Well, what’s the problem, then?

“Everybody’s got to play their part… [so] it’s not just left to the poorest wards or areas in the city where Serco can afford to buy houses.

“It causes problems for community cohesion.”

Quite right, comrade, quite right. I bet the houses are quite large where you live? We’ll buy one, and house a couple of families in it.

There! Problem solved!

    Maybe the answer to the problem would be for the government to use one of the islands in the Hebrides as a camp for all the asylum seekers – nisen huts can be erected rather quickly – and do all the processing there, should take at least 5 years to either confirm or deny status. That way all those rushing to get into the country instead of staying in the first safe country they reach, will know there is accommodation available for them.

      Why not the Isle of Wight ivan? Or is that too close for comfort?

        Actually it is just too comfortable. The camp needs to be as uncomfortable as possible to act as a deterrent because most of the asylum seekers are in fact economic migrants looking for the good life paid for by the tax payer.

              Ahhh. “Godwins law”.

              An excuse used by communists, or “Greens”, or anti-smokers, or anti fattists, or any other hippy grouping, to deflect, or “defeat” any reasoned argument/discussion away from the clear fact that there IS no difference between them and the nazis, when that reasoning comes dangerously close to proving the fact.

              And used by Nazis, who are loosing their argument, but can not be seen to be “throwing-in-the-towel.”

              Which are you “Coward?”

    Don’t see the problem, they got exactly what their hero Blair wanted and his son Cameron continues, they voted for it, they got it.

    Enjoy the fruits of the seeds you plant.

    Judd is right.

    Joe Anderson has no reason to think that this could erode his voter base. As long as taxpayers in the South drag the vestigial tail of the North around, they’ll continue to moan and despise the hand that feeds them. They’d vote for Anderson if he rogered them, as long as he wore the rosette of the wastrel.

    Ivan’s point is also very good. At first I thought ‘why pick on the Scots and dump a pile of unintelligible, impoverished, uneducated people on their territory?’. Then the penny dropped.
